That is to say I have to manually put

in the init.el or else other files there are not found

This seems to defeat the purpose of the emacs.d directory no??

No, it does not. GNu Emacs finds there its GTK resource file. When you look up the variable load-path this element is not mentioned.

Different from this is the initial behaviour to look for an init.el file in ~/.emacs.d. This one is found. If it loads other ELisp files, then these have to be in load-path.
Sorry I dont understand...
 
Different from what?
This element -- which?
GTK Resource file -- Whats that? (On WIndows?)
 
Please tell me if theres something (other than the emacs manual) I should read
